If to paint you in my mind,
extra space I will find.
Many things I could forget.
Hit delete with no regret.
On the brightest wall you will stand.
There I’d stare, brush in hand.
Heart beats thumping, a flourish made.
Details cherished never fade.
In my head we shall dwell.
Sharing thoughts we’d never tell.
On my shoulders you will ride.
Our joy displayed in our stride.
The outside world no longer exists.
Boxes checked on all our lists.
Imagination will be our place.
My only vision is your face.
All our wishes will come true.
Our dreams are filled with me and you.
But a painter I’m not nor a thief.
Freedom’s greater than my relief.
For if to hide within one’s brain,
there is no future or life to gain.
Our time together on change depends.
Our tomorrows then will know no ends.
The weekend is upon us,
it’s the first one of the year.
Resolutions will be tested,
will you be sincere?
I for one make no promises,
I wish not to lie.
I don’t want to worry or fail,
then to question why.
Though just another New Year,
a milestone’s felt.
Hindsight looms large,
pondering what’s to be dealt.
I could use improvement,
quite a lot indeed.
Fortunately love’s been found,
fulfilling every need.
But if a resolution were made,
I’d make it perfectly clear.
I’d set my sights on positive visions,
since twenty twenty’s here.
I love the way you talk anytime you speak.
I love the way you walk and your strength when I’m weak.
I love your disposition and the way that you feel.
I love to envision and know it’s real.
I love the time when you’re near.
I settle for rhyme when you’re not here.
I’d love to erase our times of sorrow.
I’d love to chase our dreams of tomorrow.
I love these days feeling for you.
I love the ways you feel it too.
Full am I, delightful is she.
Serenity whispers softly to me,
with visions of starlight by the sea.
Breathe deep, my love, one are we.
